Goldilocks and The Three Bears Costumes

Goldilocks and The Three Bears

Goldilocks and The Three Bears is a popular fairy tale based upon a story originally penned by British author and poet Robert Southey, and initially published anonymously in 1937.

It evolved from the darker oral tale Southey borrowed it from, into a delightful and largely lighthearted story of the encounter of a little girl named Goldilocks with the Father bear, Mama Bear and Baby bear.

Some of the famous lines most of us remember include "Who's been eaten my porridge?"; "Who's been sitting in my chair?"; and "Who's been sleeping in my bed?"

This terrific story lends itself to a costume theme for a family, specifically those who have enough family members and friends to dress up as Goldilocks and the three bears.

Goldilocks and The Three Bears Costumes

The Goldilocks and The Three Bears theme is one of the few that is reliant upon the agreement of a family or group to dress up as the characters in the fairy tale to make it work.

After all, who is interested in Goldilocks and the One Bear, or the Three Bears. You have to have all the characters for it to work, and when that's accomplished, it's a wonderfully fun experience for the entire family and those viewing the characters out of the winsome tale.

Dressing up as bears is a fantastic idea, and looks great, but the Goldilocks story is centered around the little girl, and the key is getting her to look great for the rest to work.

That shouldn't be too hard to do when considering how cute little girls look when dressed in a compelling costume, and Goldilocks has a terrific look that invites admiration for the "cute" in a little girl, which a good costume will enhance.

Goldilocks Costumes

Goldilocks costumes are great for little girls playing the role of Goldilocks in a family Halloween or costume outing, but adult women also like to don the Goldilocks look, sporting a cute but sexy look that draws the admiration of party goers.

For little girls, along with a cute dress, there can be included an apron, pretty hair accessories such as ribbons and bows, as well as pantaloons with ruffles on them. It's irresistably cute when the costume is throught through and complete.

Adult ladies dressing as Goldilocks tend to us the color yellow and white, which includes a wholesome look with a little touch of naughty in it.

Of course maybe adult Goldilocks wants to ditch the three bears so she can attend a party without three walking rugs following her around.

Either way, it's great fun, and when little Goldilocks has the three bears with her, it's a lot of enjoyment for everyone involved, creating some great memories.

A little suit for baby bear works perfect to complete the fun look.
